The Satan Claw is a weapon utilized by Baron Wolfgang von Strucker that bestows great strength upon himself. It also permits him to unleash electrical shocks. Since its initial creation, it has been damaged and even destroyed, yet it has been continually fixed, rebuilt, and updated over the years.

Aside from the strength enhancement and electrical shocks of the original glove, future versions of the Satan Claw have had a Gatling gun, sharp points added to the finger tips, been nuclear powered, and has been able to fire razor sharp blades, explosive shells, and has even come equipped with a teleportation device. Following the loss of his hand in battle with Nick Fury, the Satan Claw has become a prosthetic limb of sorts for Baron Strucker.

Fury once used a confiscated Satan Claw to battle a robot of Yellow Claw. A rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agent once used the Satan Claw until it was removed and destroyed by Spider-Man. The Punisher later used a version of the Satan Claw against the Rhino when he was using various objects in battle against super powered villains. Sharon Carter later wore the glove to take down Arnim Zola's forces.
